A Quote From Donal


No- we don't have snow - this picture is from last March, taken from our front porch. It's very unusual for us to get that much snow here in town. It was beautiful.
I was just remembering something someone said once. Back in the late 70's, a friend I worked with had a friend named Donal. I'm sorry I don't know his last name. He was a handsome young man, and he was attending the local junior college at the time. I did not know him very well. If I remember correctly, he had very little money. I think he camped out when the weather was nice in order to save money on rent. Maybe when the temperatures turned cold he rented a room from a friend or something, I'm not sure. But he was working at a Terrible Herbst gas station that was on the highway east of downtown. We went there after work one night to get gas, and we were talking to him. I remember him telling us "I like to work during the wintertime, because it gets cold if you're lazy"
Very profound.

I don't really have a comment other than I enjoyed your snow photo and also thought Donal's comment was profound. I hope he granduated and went on to a nice warm career. Love T
